Since its launch in 2013, Rick and Morty has built a very solid fan base. Very biting in its writing, the series often hits the mark and it now follows in the footsteps of Simpson, American Dad, of Family Guy, or even South Park. Building on this success, the idea of a film based on this production is now very strongly considered.
A “super episode“ Rick and Morty?
The subject has precisely was discussed by Dan Harmon, co-creator of Rick and Morty, during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. True to form, he started by joking about it, talking about a meeting with Zack Snyder:
The Rick and Morty movie will be released as soon as Zack Snyder returns from vacation, because I want to start with a Snyder cut of this movie, and then I want to do the director's cut of a Snyder cut, so we can have a six-hour Rick and Morty movie, three hours of which are in black and white. /p>
Here refers to the Snyder Cut, long version of Justice League, highly requested by fans and which ended up being offered by DC Comics. But if he uses humor, Dan Harmon nevertheless seems very motivated by this feature film.
The screenwriter thus indicated that he “had it’ I felt like maybe it was time to take action. He adds: “My philosophy would be to take a Rick and Morty adventure, spend a lot of money on it and make it 90 minutes long. This isn't about trying to gain feature film status by virtue of a dramatic tonal shift or anything like that, but rather making one episode of Rick and Morty that is super badass. “
Fans of the series can therefore be reassured. It would therefore be a sort of “super episode”, as Matt Stone and Trey Parker did in 1999 with their feature film South Park, the movie: Longer, more big and not cut.
We will of course wait for Warner Bros to decide to formalize this project before anything else. It will also be necessary to see what resources the studio decides to allocate to creators. In any case, the end of the writers' strike could well move things forward and allow the writers to take action.
